Looking for some colour inspiration? Or just a good ol’ music fan? If you make time for one thing this weekend take a trip to the A-Side B-Side gallery and marvel at Bryony Marie Fry’s vibrant range of paintings and collages. As a musician herself, Bryony has used her own influences to capture the essence of icons such as The Beatles, David Bowie and Patti Smith as well as newer bands such as Temples and Peace.
As a huge fan of the Pop Art era it’s fair to say it was love at first sight for me. As well as including some of my favourite ever musicians, I love the drip and splatter paint effects used in the paintings – each piece was completed whilst listening solely to the musician which directly inspired the colour combinations, techniques, and text collage. Bryony is also showing some of her own music artwork. The highlight – a painting painstakingly directly copied from one of her collages. Her detailed work is quite breathtaking and you can see the craft that has gone into it. Anyway take a look at a few snippets below and go and say hello to her. She’ll be working from inside the studios all weekend so a great chance to see her in action.
Open 12 – 6pm until Monday 2nd November | A-side B-side Gallery, Hackney Downs Studios, Amhurst Terrace, E8 2BT
